Sports pass price increase

Looks like another price increase for the Sports pass, mainly for day and weekly passes

Day pass now £8.99 and week pass now £14.99

As we don't get Catch-up, Red Button or HD, this increase is another slap in the face. Price increase for a Sports service that remains unchanged apart from channel lineup.

Re: Sports pass price increase

I also just joined today with the sports day pass that was advertised at £7.99. I only joined to watch the champions leagues match tonight and I can't see it anywhere. Gutted! Going to get payment refunded

Hi @Bcdgn 

Champions League Football is on BT and not on the NowTV service Smiley Sad.

Has anyone ever paid full price for a pass?

And still no upgrade of streaming quality from 720p to 1080p that was promised last year.. price increases without improving the service. Pretty poor

 

Re: Sports pass price increase

I took up the 'season pass' offer for the football season but can't see myself renewing sports. Weighing up the cost against the number of games I actually have time to watch now doesn't make sense to me anymore in my circumstances.

 

I expected a 50fps upgrade by now but it hasn't happened. I know it was never promised but I expected 50fps over 720p rather than a 1080p upgrade but neither have happened.

Passes are now too expensive. Simple as that IMO.

 

I've suggested this before, as have others. We need a 6 hour pass at £4.99 or less. This would effectively be a "single event pass". The only time I might accept £8.99 (£9 let's be honest) is if there are 2 or more events within a 24 hour period, but that's quite rare.

Also the version we get is worse the SD, shaking background images gives you a headache. Poor, poor quality, looks like I’ll be getting a different make.

At rack rate they are, but surely no one pays that.  I have never paid more than £13 for just the month pass and got both my Now TV sticks with the month pass included for £30 each. And the day passes I have have been freebies from Pringles, Gillette and Now TV themselves.  There used to be half price day passes from time to time, but haven't seen them for a while.

 

May be possible to watch 4 premier games next weekend with a day pass.  I have found that the 24 hour pass can last a little longer than that so it may just be possible.   But don't blame me if it goes off going into injury time.  Alternatively don't start watching the West Ham game until half time.

What are you watching on?  The new Now TV devices are pretty good.  Better than my virgin SD.
